Environmental conservation is the planned management of natural resources for the preservation of the environment’s diversity. The major scopes of environmental conservation include pollution control, natural resource utilisation and development, addressing issues related to global warming and climate change, managing extreme events, natural hazards, and disasters, developing in the field of environmental engineering, ecosystem management, and habitat conservation, and so forth. The research area incorporated several subjects, including science and social studies in order to identify safe production and consumption practises to reduce the negative effects of human activity on the environment.
